A ridge vent is a type of vent installed at the peak of a sloped roof which allows warm, humid air to escape a building's attic. Ridge vents are most common on shingled residential buildings.

Ridge vents are also used in industrial warehouses to help release the hot air and help circulate comfortable air inside the building.
